Long silky soft hair is every girl’s dream. We get so obsessed with the beauty standards that we run after them crazy. When it comes to beauty, be very careful in choosing the right kind of product.
Stay away from harsh chemicals as they can do more harm than good in the long run. Instead of falling prey for very attractive advertisements, read the labels carefully. Opt for the ones that are sulfate and paraben free.
Wash your hair just 2-3 times a week. Excess washing could strip off the natural oils produced by the scalp. Of course, this isn’t practical during the hot summers when your entire body is super sweaty. So, you need to wash your hair every day to prevent fungal infections.
You can do a hot oil massage at least once a week and leave it for 1-2 hours before washing it off with a mild shampoo. Apply a conditioner on the wet shampooed hair without touching the scalp. Let it stay for a while then wash it off thoroughly. This could reduce the frizz and dryness due to the stripping of moisture by shampoo. Any residues on your hair or scalp could dry out your hair and lead to split ends.
Keep the hair dryers away. Avoid all the excess heat and let your hair dry naturally.
Use a soft towel and slowly pat it along the length of your hair instead of just rubbing it too hard.
Take a drop of hair serum in your palm and gently apply it on your hair while it is still wet. This step is highly essential to get back the moisture which is lost while shampooing.
Make sure you comb your hair 2 times a day. This improves the blood circulation in the scalp and promotes hair growth.
Make it a point to keep your comb, towels, as well as your pillow covers clean to prevent germ build up as it could have a negative impact on the health of the hair.
Use a silk pillowcase as it is really gentle on your hair.
Do not leave your hair open all the time. Find some time to make your hair into a braid or a simple bun before going to bed which could prevent all the tangles and fuss the next morning.
Never tie your hair too tight for a long time. This could eventually pull out your hair right from the root and cause baldness in the areas with increased pressure.
Tie your hair only if it is completely dry.
Always apply heat protectant serum or spray right before using any kind of styling tools with heat. This forms a protective coating around the hair and reduces the extent of damage.
Detangle your hair gently with your fingers before using a comb.
Apply a hair mask once in a while to boost up the hair growth process.
Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to be well nourished.
Be gentle with your hair and your hair is gonna thank you for that !!
